LONDON: The UK government has drafted a "positive personal goals" plan for jailed extremists in an attempt to divert them from extreme views while in prison.
Documents leaked to 'The Sunday Times' newspaper reveal that the scheme will involve convicted terrorists placed in so-called "separation centres" being required to inform on other extremist inmates as part of their "proactive positive behaviour".
"Separation centre prisoners should have an individualised care and management plan which sets out realistic, achievable targets, while also taking into account the complex, ideological/political nature of some of the risks that need to be targeted," reads a leaked UK Ministry of Justice document.
Along with expressing a "positive contribution to wing atmosphere, relations and peers", inmates will also be assessed on their "collaborative approach to expressing concerns and resolving disagreements".
The latest plan comes after the justice ministry had announced earlier this month the opening of a separation centre at HMP Frankland, a high security prison in County Durham, north-east England, as the first of three units to house the UK's 28 "most dangerous and radicalised extremists".
Britain's notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who was jailed for five and a half years in September last year for urging Muslims to support the terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS), became the first known Islamist extremist to be moved to a "separation centre" at the isolation unit.
